Today in the podcast, I am answering a question from Mary about how to organize dog supplies and dog food.
Here are the 10 items I organize with Hunter.
#1 Dog Food
After looking at the price per ounce, I found that 3 small bags is just about the same price as 1 large bag of dog food. So, I opted for 3 smaller bags.
I empty 1 bag at a time into this Tupperware bread box I bought over 20 years ago.
There is a little bit extra which I put in Hunter’s bowl and into a container for Doggy Day Care.
Oh my! This is embarrassing. We totally spoil our kids…and now Hunter! I keep his favorite treats in this bread box in the kitchen.
Hunter has commandeered a few of Joey’s hooks in our back hallway. All of his leashes fit on one hook and his daycare and WALK bag are on the next hooks.
#4 Toy Baskets
Hunter has both downstairs and upstairs toy bins for quick pick up.
#5 Dog Beds
In the podcast, I go into great length about our dog beds. 🙂
The small one is one we had for our cat; it now stays at daycare.
The larger bed in in the family room and matched Hunter’s Napoleon complex. 🙂
#6 Outside Toys
I have no organization here. Where do those yellow tennis balls go?!
#7 Doggie Day Care and WALK bag
This Littles Carry All from 31 is Hunter’s baby bag. I keep it fully stocked so we can grab it and go on a walk, to the park or to day care.
Here’s what I keep inside:
chap stick, a visor, poop bags, food, a water bottle, sunglasses and headphones.
#8 Baby Gates
Having Hunter gated in the kitchen and family room area has really saved my sanity. He is almost ready to have them taken down.
I was worried I would forget Hunter’s monthly medicine. I added it into the kid’s pill box that I use to fill their weekly pill dispensers every week.
#10 Should you donate items with dog and cat hair on them?
When donating instead of recycling something think… would I pay for this in this condition? If the answer is yes, donate it. If the answer is no, either recycle it or clean it to be donated.
Ask me your question!
